Abstract
AND FABRICATE BOTH A PROTOTYPE SUCTION SERVICE AND INFUSION DEVICE THAT WILL UTILIZED A MECHANICAL ROLLER PUMP POWERED WITH ALTERNATIVE MECHANISMS. THE LIGHWEIGHT AND PORTABLE SUCTION DEVICE WILL BE EXPECTED TO PROVIDE CONTROLLED SUCTION OVER A WIDE RANGE OF VACUUM (10 TO 100 CM WATER) FOR VARIOUS TUBE AND OPERATIVE SITE USAGE. POWER FOR THE DEVICE WILL BE NON-ELECTRICAL AND MAY BE PRODUCED BY A SPRING-WOUND MECHANISM WITH A CONSTANT FORCE OUTPUT AND AN INTEGRAL SPEED CONTROL. THE INTRAVENOUS INFUSION DEVICE WILL BE GRAVITY-INDEPENDENT AND EXPECTED TO DELIVER MEASURED AMOUNTS OF FLUIDS AT A PRESSURE OF 50 TO 100 CM WATER AND A RELIABLE RATE OF 125 ML\HR WITHOUT TECHNICAL SUPERVISION FOR USE DURING MASS CASULATY AND TRANSPORT OF WOUNDED. BOTH A SPRING-WOUND MECHANISM AS DESCRIBED ABOVE AND A DO-POWERED SERVD STEPPING MOTOR WITH DIGITAL SPEED CONTROL WILL INVESTIGATED TOGETHER WITH OTHER POTENTIAL CANDIDATES FOR DRIVING THE ROTARY PERISTALTIC INFUSION PUMP. A PRESSURE SENSOR ALARM WILL DISCONTINUE THE FLOW IF SYSTEM PRESSURE RISES ABOVE 150 CM OF WATER TO AVOID DANGEROUS INTERCELLULAR INFILTRATION IF THE INFUSING NEEDLE LEAVES THE VEIN.
